Brandy, Do your tutors keep a record of their tutoring sessions? Do they advise you of their arranged sessions, time/location, etc.? When we were decentralized, this was crucial. I tried my best to 'visit' each tutor in their session, but it was tough without a central location. I basically used the SI model for the observation. It pretty much covers what I needed to observe and why recreate the wheel! Good luck!

However, I am finding it difficult to observe our tutors who have individualized contracts because we do not have a centralized location for tutoring and the time of tutoring is arranged between the tutor and the student. Does anyone have suggestions? I would also like to see some examples of performance evaluation forms. Any information about the evaluation procedures at different institutions would also be appreciated.
